All I can say is I am glad he got busted and all horses were taken away from him and he can't ever own anymore! The rescue service said all 12 horses were in rough shape. I broke my heart to think she was with in for a full year and at such a young tender age. When she was delivered here it took 2 people with a lead on each side of her to get her out of the stock trailer and into the stall. It took me almost a year to gain her trust and let me brush her without her trembling! I wish I could post a pic of her. She was beautiful!

GOOD FOR YOU for having brought her along to the point you DID, & for realizing her fears & finding a place for her to have a truly happy and meaningful "forever home" w/o fear of having to be ridden (or, in her mind, nearly CRUSHED!)....

Thank G-d he (the man you described) can never own horses again...I'll never understand a person being able to do terrible or harmful things to any animal & live with themselves...

I happen to come across this,

Fun ALL Around Show/pleasure
The horse in the add is said to be "Buckskin" but here's his only picture:


Buckskin? Maybe he has Buckskin and any type of dun confused, because he seems Grullo/a to me.

this isnt a horse for sale ad, but I would like to say that the amount of people posting "hay wanted" ads on craigslist is rediculous.




And they seem to all have in common that they need horse quality and they want it cheap. GOOD LUCK.

Today I saw an ad for someone want 2-3 rounds, or 50-60 small squares for $150....they must not realize we are in winter now (this alone makes hay higher), and we had a drought..

sheesh even for here [rounds or squares, either way] $150 is cheap....... HERE, and our farmers have JUST cut and baled. A single grass round here is about $55 this time of year [more if it's nice enough to keep/put weight on a hard keeper] and in a bad year can be as much as $100 towards the end of winter. I have to get a few rounds soon so my horses don't drop weight and with the distinct possibility I might be rescuing a very skinny TB it is going to have to be good hay, probably oaten from this one guy who's been advertising in the local paper. That's $77/round, and we usually go through a round every 2 weeks if we just stick it in the paddock with them, so in a season that's a LOT of hay. Last year we started with 100 squares, which lasted us a few months [1 whole square bale/day between 2 easy keepers and a horse that refused to eat it - but the picky one was costing a fortune in grain because he's not an easy keeper] then went through 16 rounds.

We usually hay from about Nov/Dec [now-ish] right through summer and autumn, through winter and then normally break off around Aug/Sept when the spring flush happens and they're all fat on grass alone. If I'm feeding oaten rounds, though, I might get a few pallets to keep my rounds off the ground and keep them covered and away from the horses so it doesn't get spread everywhere... and the ponies don't explode!

A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE FUTURE

prairie hay is costing between $85 (if your lucky) to $115 for a big round, brome is a little higher..alfalfa is higher yet, here in kansas.. hay was alot cheaper last year..but just the fact that these people have a horse but yet are dilusional to the hay prices and the fact that they didnt think ahead for wint, makes me really sad for that horse!!

I am lucky enough to still be grazing my girls, but that didnt mean I waited til the last second to buy hay. I did have to wait longer than I wanted as we were trying to close on our house and if it had fallen through I would have NO hay storage.. but not a week or so after closing I secured my first load of hay.

This ad made me a little sad... I don't know why, maybe just the abruptness of the ad.


6 year old registerd bay tobiano pinto 3/4 Arab mare for sale. 15.2hh, feet just done, up to date on shots and worming.

In foal for middle to end of Febuary. In foal to AQHA Grullo.

I do not have the facilities for foaling out so must sell this mare as was told not in foal at time of purchase.

Mare is unbroke, has trust issues. Needs an experienced handler.

she seems well taken care of.. and I can't blame them for wanting to resell given the fact she is in foal. They should have been told this before the purchase.

Oh I know, I don't blame them either, I might do the same. It just makes me a little sad for the horse that already has trust issues.
